Another Very Exhausting Day.

Second only to Saturday's Moving To Our RV sale, this was a tiring day.  Went through the house and sorted everything left into two piles; one pile for the Humane Society to pick up and another pile to be transferred to the camper.  Heck, we are already 200 lbs overweight, and we have more "stuff" that needs to be with us (we think).  There will be some more sorting and separating of stuff before this is all over.  By the time we have to move on May 19th, we will have determined that some "necessities" are only "wants".  Did all of you go through this process before hitting the road big time?

The Humane Society folks and the buyers of my big oak office wall unit showed up about the same time, 4:30 pm.  It was after 5:30 before we could load up the pooches and stop at KFC on the way home.  We seldom do fast food take out, but we had Papa Murphy's on Saturday and KFC tonight.  All the calories I burned with all this activity got replaced with high calorie, fatty fast food.  It was wonderful to get back to the peaceful, serene campsite and gobble down the calories.  Now after an adult beverage (or two), my feet are bare and I am in the beginning of a comfort zone.  Ooh, bare feet on new carpet; how good can it get?

As time goes on you will find you don't need or use a lot of the stuff you initially took with you. Just go through things every once in awhile and get rid of what you don't use, and you should be able to lighten your load. I think all fulltimers start out with more than they really need. It's a learning experience.

Ilene with HSUV here I just wanted to thank you again for the donations and wish you luck and good times in your travels.

Thanks Jim & Gayle. I am glad I am not the only one experiencing this dilemma.

Ilene, it was our pleasure to donate what we could to the Humane Society of the Upper Valley. I hope we can play some small part in helping some dog or cat experience a better life.
